Patriots WR Danny Amendola working with Tom Brady's trainer

When you have an injury history like Danny Amendola @DannyAmendola's, you'll try just about anything to stay healthy. Amendola's newest hope: Working out with Tom Brady's trainer.
His name is Alex Guerrero, and he worked with Amendola this offseason, according to NFL.com's Albert Breer. Guerrero worked with Julian Edelman @Edelman11 before last season, and he ended playing a full slate for the first time in his career and caught more than 100 passes.
For what it's worth, Brady hasn't missed a game since his 2008 ACL tear.

Fantasy Analysis:

It's worth a shot, right? This story with Amendola is the same as it was entering last year: He can catch 80+ balls in New England if his body doesn't break down. But it seems to do so year after year. In 2013, he was limited for basically the entire year by a groin injury.
This development would be more important if not for this fact: A lot of injuries are just bad luck. A bad landing, an awkward step, a rough or low tackle, they can all lead to major injury. Ultimately, there's really not much a trainer or a player can do to prevent it. Amendola has just been unlucky for most of his career. There's as good of a chance that his luck will change this season, but fantasy owners are understandably shying away. He is being drafted as a WR 4/5.
